DESSERT IN A GLASS




We recently completed an event where dessert inspired cocktails were served. We came across this cocktail recipe today and wish we would have found it before. Oh well--maybe next event! As a lover of anything with lime, this cool summer dessert cocktail has us drooling...

 Key Lime Pie Martinis


 
Ingredients
• Graham cracker crumbs, for rimming the glasses
• 2 lime wedges
• 6 tablespoons (3 ounces) vanilla flavored vodka
• 1/4 cup (2 ounces) key lime liqueur (recommended: KeKe Beach Key Lime Liqueur)
• 2 tablespoons pineapple juice
• 2 tablespoons heavy cream
• Ice cubes

Directions:

1. Pour the graham cracker crumbs in a shallow dish. Rub a lime wedge around the edge of a martini glass and roll the edge in the graham cracker crumbs. Chill the glass for 30 minutes or until ready to serve.

2. Combine the vanilla vodka, key lime liqueur, pineapple juice, and cream in a shaker. Fill the shaker half full with ice and shake until well blended.

3. Pour into prepared martini glasses, garnish with a lime wedge and serve immediately.
